This is how I see them

her little taffeta white suit and blue piping
a hat tilted just so with her dark curls flowing
around her face and down her back
white gloves in hand with shoes and bag to match

little bit of cherry lipstick against her
alabaster skin eyes the color of Robin eggs
open wide in search of her hero

down the plank she walks along with all
the other war brides
do you see him Mom  he is that handsome tall
slender army officer in uniform with the black
wavy hair and that beautiful smile

he has been waiting for you for such a long
time now

their eyes meet his arms open wide and
she runs to him
one journey is over and now for all eternity
another journey begins
the two of them together loving holding and
sharing until...

In memory of my beloved Mother
